Betony Plug Plants Stachys officinalis
Common names include, purple betony, wood betony and bishop's wort.
Brighten your garden, woodland floor or wildflower meadow with this distinctive perennial native wildflower. Betony's attractive purple-red flowers can be seen from mid-summer through to September so it is useful for colour, and for pollinators, late in the growing season.
Betony prefers heavy soils and damp sites, but not waterlogged and is at home in woodland or by riverbanks.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
